The Iranian

My friend: Ursa Minor
I spent my days
For night to come
To send my lonely eyes to visit you

Last night you were not alone
Not anymore: Another constellation was near you
More vivid, more shiny with in the shape of a heart
I counted the stars: 7 and so bright
And I felt them so close

I asked you the name
You gave me: Columbia
You winked and said:
You are not alone with Columbia

I was startled
Sent my eyes around the earth
And saw millions of wet eyes
Sending homage to Columbia
Then I knew
Columbia was nothing but 7 eternal human dreams
To remain near you forever and a day.
